We want to thank everyone that braved the storms/Blackhawks game and came out last night to our Embracing the Chicago Creative Community party, and thank you to Society Gallery for providing a beautiful space to host the event! We had an amazing group of artists, musicians, dancers, and nonprofits come out and showcase bits and pieces of Chicago’s art community. Check out some of the highlights below:

Olivia Reyes kicked off the night, performing a few of her own songs that combine r&b, pop and rock.

Again, a big thank you to everyone who came out! We had a great time and we’ll continue to work with the Chicago creative community and help with their fundraising needs. As we continue to grow as a crowdfunding platform, we want to grow alongside Chicago’s artists, so we hope to see everyone at the next event!
